During the summer, Cannes is in party mode. The city puts on its best light show especially for you. In July and August, you’ll find sights and sounds galore on the Croisette during the Firework Festival.
The Firework Festival (Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique) is more than an event, it’s become a Cannes tradition that locals and visitors love visiting every year, as they have been doing since 1967. Cannes’ beaches have a dazzling display in store for you! Time will stand still as you watch the magical spectacle with your family, friends or someone special. Each year, the sounds and colours that light up the sky over Cannes are more wonderful than the year before. Technological advances are more and more impressive, to guarantee you a show that just keeps getting better and better.
Professional pyrotechnicians and display organizers take part in a major competition here. Once again the greatest international pyrotechnicians assemble in the French Riviera to demonstrate the full extent of their skills. The competitive edge to the event guarantees a top quality pyromusical spectacle. This year, Canada will open the show, followed by France, with Italy bringing the 2017 event to a close at the end of August. Watch multicoloured musical frescoes taking shape in the skies… it’s an amazing artform. Everyone has stars in their eyes, kids and grown-ups alike!
Cannes turns into an open-air theatre for the occasion. Just take a seat, look upwards and enjoy the show. Six nights to remember, starting 10 p.m. in the Bay of Cannes between July 13 and August 24 2017. The Patio des Artistes is looking forward your visit and seeing the amazement in your eyes!
